Un Caroni sur le fumé/toasté ! C'est intéressant et très bon. Nécessite une autre dégustation

This version was made from 22 casks found by Luca Gargano and it has 85% angel share!!! A wonderful rum with near perfect balance and a mix of light and heavy rums.

Süß würzig Holz im abklang. Wenig dreckige Noten zu finden. Erinnert eher an einen TDL

Absolut caroni untypisch mit fehlt hier vollkommen der abgefahrene gummireifen. Blind hätte ich hier an guyana gedacht.

temmelig tør, smager ikke af klassisk Caroni

Nicht ganz so schön wie der "Last Caroni" aber ein echt mächtiger Rum im typischen Caroni Stil. Preislich deutlich überbewertet.

Nez plutôt alcoolisé, très typé Barbade... partir de traces de gros caroni qui tache. Le boisé est présent sans écraser le type. Le reste fait la part belle aux fruits (Orange, citron, marmelade) et arômes pâtissiers ainsi qu’ une fraîcheur mentholée. Le goudron, caramel brûlé ne sont pas vraiment présents Une bouche plus monolithique avec du fruité comme au nez et de grosses notes tertiaires... ça n’écrase pas le tout comme sur un 94 23yo mais on sent qu’il était temps. Un gros caoutchouc sera de partie le rendant moins sexy que prévu au nez Un caroni light /heavy qui ne ressemble que de loin à un caroni... est ce bon ? Oui, clairement c’est sympa. Est ce un caroni inoubliable, non... trop rude pour être un Barbade, trop poli pour être un caroni, on se retrouve avec un étrange mix des deux, mais est ce ça qu’on attendait ?
